I felt like I had to share my experience with Daniel Grandi at
First of all, the man does EVERYTHING. And well.
I sent him some organic objects that I found here in Singapore. They
were seed pods, leaves, and some things that I still can’t identify.
I wanted them cast in Sterling.
THey turned out to be a royal pain, but Daniel got 2 of the three
types to work.
I am currently visiting the US and made a trip to Daniel’s
factory/studio and spent a few hours with him looking at my stuff,
but more importantly, had a chance to see his workshop and all of
the items that he works on. He really gave me the grand tour
complete with detailed explainations, etc. A very eye-opening
I would recommend him to anyone. Not only did he try multiple ways
to get my “pods” to cast, but he is one interesting and innovative
gentleman. A pleasure to do business with.
I just felt that I needed to let more people know.
